Well, at least I've learned from you! Thanks!

As much as I love it, I don't deserve it. It's yours. That should be hanging on your wall!

I for sure have learned from you as well. Those pictures of how you laid out your sky in this one really got me thinking for backgrounds. Plus the candle wax and how you do your colors. I really need to practice my technique on planning out some multi-colored ones.

I've been kind of in the mode lately of just doing semi-practical spin/sc/bag/gel combo dyes to retain the stamp...Mostly just making my own discs look pretty. I feel I need to challenge myself more now after seeing all these this year! I don't think I could bring myself to throw something like yours though if I ever pulled one off that cool. Great job again!

Thanks! You are correct...'Hand' is on a kinda off white GL river. Lycanus is on a white opto river although it is more opaque than the clear opto plastic I'm accustomed to.

You guys really blow my mind with your skills and creativity. Thanks for posting this thread.

Sometimes I feel like a complete hack when it comes to dyes. Especially after I see some of the incredible "Flying Art" you guys do.

Pretty amazing! Thanks for walking through the process. I didn't realize there were so many steps involved, I'm even more impressed with more complex and multi-colored dies now.

What plastic/mold did you use?

Full Moon Feast was done on a Glow Champion Roadrunner, and I tried SO hard to get a good shot of it glowing, but was unsuccessful.

Would any of you be willing to post how, and with what equipment you took your shots with? I'd appreciate it!

Thanks,
-Jeff
Murder of Crows is on a Glow Champion Leopard. I have a nice Canon and tripod. Set the disc up, and set the exposure for a good few seconds, experiment but exposure is long. I've gone somewhere between 8 and 13 seconds to get good results. Make sure the room is completely dark(closet, bathroom) and keep the camera still.

Thanks Bennett! That's kinda what I figured. The longest exposure I could get with my point and shoot was 2 seconds. Might have to have a friend take some shots.

BTW, did you find that pic?

Peace,

That's an amazing job and a very time consuming process.
I have a couple of questions.

After you died the black outline, did you have to remask it to then dye then green skin? Same with the red top. When you went to dye it, did you have to cover everything else up?

How much practice do you have to have cutting by hand to do this?!

Thanks for the excellent step-by-step! Cutting that whole thing by hand takes some patience, that's for sure.

Thanks TOB3RT! After dyeing the black, I just peeled the vinyl where the green skin was, and did another hot dip. You can dye lighter colors right over the black without affecting it. After the green, I brushed the rest of the fill colors in, just like a coloring book. The only time I re-masked was for the background, and that was to the middle of the black outline.

Although this was the first disc I ever dyed by cutting the mask by hand, I do have years of practice cutting masks with a #11 X-atco knife from my custom painting (motorcycles and helmets) days. All I can say is, just jump in and do it! Start with a simple design to gain confidence and a feel for what the blade is doing. Always keep a sharp blade and let IT do the work.

An aside, This being my first hand cut mask, I've always been skeptical about cutting the mask directly on the disc, for fear that it would scar the plastic or even worse, weaken or compromise it. I have to say that there is not one visible line from the blade on "Full Moon Feast".

Hope that answered your questions!

Peace,
-Jeff

This thread is great !

Funny thing is that I almost always take more pictures than I did of my submission, I only have one non-final picture.

Here's how I did it though:

Found the image on Google Images by searching for "Evil Face" (first picture)
Printed pics from google never seem crisp enough to use as stencils, so I generally print them and then redraw the lines in black. This time I just drew the pic. Then I made a cleaner version by tracing the first (second picture).

Then a dip dye with idye black for the black on the right side of the disc and the pupil.

Then weed off the blood and painted on idye crimson. Cut the viens in the white of the eye, flexed the disc to open them and painted on idye red. And weeded off the lighter areas on the right side and painted with a mix of idye blue, gun metal, and silver.

Then shaded those lighter ares with black to get a smoother transition. And weed off the Iris and paint on Pylam green.

Then put lines of idye blue on each side of the eye (on the vinyl), and with a toothpick, stroked the blue onto the Iris. Ive used that technique before and I really liked how it worked here.

Remasked and cut out the hand to avoid getting unwanted dye on the blood.

Colored the hand using a base skin color of idye red and water, applied at room temp with a qtip a few times (as discussed in that other thread). Used idye silver, gunmetal, black, brown, purple, red and crimson while coloring and shading the hand. At this point is where the third picture was taken.

Then it was one more remask, weed off the enire left side except the eye. Did the coloring and shading with the same colors as the hand, but on the face I got that textured look by again using a toothpick and putting a small amount of dye on and making streaks, being as random as possible with a brown and gunmetal mix, then again with just gunmetal.

Then weeded off the eye to do some final shading there (the reddish edge of the eye white, and the actual shading).

After that, just a couple touch ups and it was done.
